So I've started college and I am going to be doing artwork for that most of the time for a while. Therefore I don't think I'm going to be posting alot on here until I have chance to do my own artwork. I leave you with this sketch of some hands I did the other day! Write as soon as I can xoxox LJ

I have a whole group of people who I look up to creatively and in life and I figured I should share them on here, Seen as though I'm putting up my artwork!
Robin is an Artist and friend from Orlando, Florida. As well as being inspired by her artwork, I am inspired by her life! Robin gets to live in the place I love more than anywhere in the world, and she gets to paint for a living! I hope to one day do the same. Check Robin out at
Tim Hendricks is known to be a Tattoo Artist on the Shows Miami Ink and NY Ink. Hendricks inspired me to practice my portraits! His work is fantastic and makes me more enthusiastic about becoming a tattoo artist.

This week I've been doing some murals on the walls of my friend, Jennys salon . I probably spent more time in a salon in the past 3 days than I have in my whole life. Well, it was really fun to do and here are some pictures :)
This was my favourite to do. The colours were great to paint.
Lettering and Bamboos!!
I never want to have to paint bamboos again! "Dark...Medium...Light..." !

It was my18th Birthday on Wednesday! I had an awesome day and went to dinner with some friends from training and my family. I got some amazing gifts, So I had to blog about how beautiful some were. I can't wait to take some ideas from the gifts and include them in my artwork...
ZENIT-E Vintage Camera
My Mom found me this in a Vintage shop for real cheap. Its so beautiful. I've had some vintage cameras before, Including an Chinon and Nikon, but sold them a while back. Hopefully I can get some film this week and make some awesome pictures.
My friends know me so well. I got 4 bracelets for my birthday. The top silver one is an Elements love heart from my Friends at training. Its lovely. The next one down is from my Best Friend Amy, Its a Nalu Surf Bead & Bracelet and Its so me! This girl knows me so well. The bead is beautiful. The next one down is home-made by my friends daughter, Gracie. She's 5 and this bracelet rocks! The next one down is from my moms friend and my boss (!), from Pandora. Its so me, I love all of them and will treasure them dearly!
Kat Von D's "Tattoo Chronicles"
Even though I prefer the Miami and NY Ink shows, I do really love Kat. This book is so inspiring, the artwork is amazing and the photographs are beautiful. Its definitely a special book to keep. The pictures above are ones I particularly love. I think Kat looks so beautiful in the top one, I plan on sketching that out...
Saw this in a magazine and I love the artwork for it, Will have a go at my own version tonight! Post tommorow!
